A close partnership and open dialogue between the ICC and civil society is vital to fighting impunity and delivering justice for victims. That was the message of ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda, who recently visited the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) in Paris.

In discussing how her office works with organizations such as FIDH, Bensouda emphasized the need for further outreach to communities affected crimes under the Court’s jurisdiction.

By becoming a resource for information about the ICC, civil society can help communities better understand the Court and what to expect from its work.

    Which dialogue between ICC and civil society? I did what many others (amongst them successful laywers) did: I sent a letter, an e-mail, a facsimile, an important question and never got an answer, not even a simple acknowledgment of receipt. ICC officials are more than superior to the rest of the world.
